Volunteer work in Totnes with Totnes Caring


Our volunteers are very important to us, and help us to help others in many different ways - from running our Monthly Bazaars (Sue and Lynda are shown) which raises much needed funding to provide our services to many others.

Totnes Caring is celebrating 27 years of serving the community.

We are a registered charity offering much needed help and assistance to the elderly, disabled and vulnerable in the community. In particular the support is for the relief of the elderly and sick to enable them to live in their own homes, to help them remain independent and not be isolated from the community

These services are provided in the area covered by Leatside and Catherine House Surgeries and to the people who live in Totnes and its surrounding villages.
